Sports & Outdoor Learning

Kingsthorne believes in giving all of our pupils a sporting start. We provide the children with high quality Physical Education and sporting opportunities through curriculum, coaching, out of school hours learning, lunchtime provision and competitions.

 

At Kingsthorne Primary School we strive to offer the best Physical Education and School Sport opportunities for our pupils. Through sport we encourage the children to develop positive attitudes to themselves, to others and to the community. We aim to achieve this by having high expectations of all our pupils and continually encourage them to be independent, confident learners in Physical Education and encourage them to make the most of opportunities provided for them.

 

All pupils take part in two hours of physical activity per week, but have opportunities to develop this and take part in lunchtime activities, after school and lunchtime clubs hours and inter house competitions.

 

In addition to this, all children across Key Stage 2 are given the opportunity to attend a residential in the Summer Term. Here they are given the chance to take part in real hands on experiences and increase their independence and resilience.

 

Through Physical Education and School Sport we aim to develop the following in our pupils:

  • Greater knowledge and understanding of games play.
  • Opportunities to express themselves creatively.
  • To enjoy being physically active.
  • To have personal achievement and increased self-esteem and confidence.
  • To have opportunities to solve problems, think independently and make decisions.
  • An environment of consideration and care for others.
  • The contribution of all pupils is valued and valuable whatever their ability or attainment.
  • An understanding of fair play and sportsmanship.
  • Recognise that competition is natural, inevitable and a valuable life skill.
  • Knowledge of safe practice and how to achieve this.
